Discovery Bay Games, which offers app-based game accessories, says that ‘Saturday Night Live – The Game,’ a new app compatible with the iOS-exclusive Duo Pop accessory for iPad, is now available on the App Store.
In February 2011, Discovery Bay Games secured worldwide digital tablet rights for “Saturday Night Live” through an ongoing relationship with Broadway Video Enterprises, says the company.
The deal, it says, allowed for the creation of this first “Saturday Night Live” App and provides opportunities for creating additional multi-activity games for iPad using the Duo Pop accessory.
According to the company, the “Saturday Night Live” App, together with Duo Pop, delivers a unique gameplay experience for the whole family on iPad.
- 172 questions featuring videos and images from the 1990s
- Duo Pop Party Mode offering a true game show experience for 2 to 4 players or teams
- Solo Trivia Challenge, enabling a single player to compete against the timer (Duo Pop not required)
- Content for ages 12 and up
“We are excited about the opportunities this partnership has presented for us on a global scale,” said Craig Olson, CEO of Discovery Bay Games. “This new game utilizes the full power of iPad to deliver a compelling and rich gameplay experience featuring content from ‘Saturday Night Live.’”
“Saturday Night Live,” which debuted in October 1975, is stated to be the most Emmy-nominated show in television history with 142 nominations and has been honored twice with the George Foster Peabody Award.
The ‘Saturday Night Live – The Game’ App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore. It was announced Thursday, Oct. 27.
